Linda and Dave had plans for a destination wedding but instead Covid force them to have a Bellarine Peninsula wedding.   And it couldn’t have been more perfect.

After Coronavirus put an end to their plans to get married in Tassie, they chose Basil’s farm as a wedding venue.

These two love an adventure.   They love spending time in nature,  hiking and travelling.  They love to have a good time.    And they don’t take themselves too seriously.  When they asked me to be their celebrant, I couldn’t have been more excited.

Their day was incredibly special and a lot of fun.    Guests were treated to one surprise after another.

The celebrations got off to an exciting start when Linda and Dave arrived together.   In a helicopter!!

This set the tone for a wonderful evening of celebrations.    But the night ended on a high when Linda and Dave announced to their guests that they were expecting a baby! What a day and one that I will always fondly remember.

Here is a little snippet of the days events captured by the lovely Jamie from Countrymile photography

Fiona Garrivan, if we could give you a 10 star review we would!
It was so refreshing to have different ideas on how the ceremony could play out. From start to finish, we feel you made our ceremony so personal, fun & the way you included our family just made it all so much more special.
You were a breeze to work with, so accommodating & reassuring. You kept the nerves at bay & your calming presence & warm smile was just the tonic we needed as we stood at the top of the aisle. Your positive energy drifted through all our guests to give us one of the best days of our lives.
We had so many of our guests tell us after our ceremony that they wish they could go back in time & have chosen YOU to marry them. That says it all!
10/10 Fiona! Thank you for making our day perfect!
